Full description
Get to know Venice on a small group two-hour tour around the city center. Your guide, an expert in the history and culture of the Most Serene Republic, will explain the city’s navigation, foods, and mazy canals.   Your starting point is the Maria Immacolata Statue, from there pass over the Rialto Bridge. Take stunning pictures of the Grand Canal from a panoramic rooftop terrace. Walk in the small calli (streets) and campi (squares) to arrive, finally, in Piazza San Marco, where your guide will tell you all about the Basilica that makes this square so magnificent. Talk about the square itself, the clock tower, and the San Marco Bell Tower.   After your walking tour, you’ll hop on a gondola for a tour of the canals. Pass under the Bridge of Sighs and take in views of the city from the water for a half hour, before returning to the streets.
